POWER OF ATTORNEY & COURT OF PROTECTION

At CITYWIDE, our experienced Solicitors offer comprehensive advice, assistance, and representation in all  aspects of Power of Attorney Law,

including:

A Lasting Power of Attorney helps you plan how your health, well-being, and financial affairs will be managed and how you will be cared for in case you slowly or even suddenly lose mental capacity and need to be looked after. You can decide who will make key decisions for you and what those decisions should be if things go wrong. If you have no Power of Attorney and something suddenly goes wrong and you lose the ability to make decisions for yourself, it will leave the Court of Protection to decide for you.  The Court appoints an Official Solicitor to act as the Litigation Friend where no other suitable person has been identified by the court. That process costs a lot of money.

TYPES

Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) Property and Financial Affairs

A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) Property and Financial Affairs allows you to choose one or more people to make the property and financial affairs decisions for you either because you are no longer very strong to run around to places like the bank or building society, or if you lose the ability to make decisions for yourself.

Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) Health 

A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) Health and Welfare allows you to choose one or more people to make decisions for things such as medical treatment, where you live, who you see, what you eat, whether you should travel. A Health and Welfare Lasting Power of Attorney will be used only if you lack the ability to make decisions for yourself and are unlikely to recover sufficiently to be able to make the necessary decision with a reasonable time

We provide professional advice, preparation, and representation in the following areas:

  • Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) – Property and Financial Affairs
  • Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) Health and Welfare 
  • Application for registration of the LPA with the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG)
  • Application to the Court of Protection for appointment a Litigation Friend/Official Solicitor 
  • Defending a welfare claim before the Court of Protection

I received an excellent service by Citywide Solicitors today

I received an excellent service by Citywide Solicitors today. Easy appointment planned. With helpful staff and approachable Solicitor who was interested in what I had to say and advised appropriately, checking in, whilst ensuring a worthy discussion.

All documents checked and processed sameday, which was amazing and I found this reassuring as the transaction was completed in good time.

Thank you Theo for your time today and being flexible. I was fortunate you were recommended to me.

I would happily use this Citywide

Adil exceeded my expectations as an immigration lawyer

Adil exceeded my expectations as an immigration lawyer. His knowledge and dedication were evident from our first consultation. Throughout my case, he provided clear guidance, kept me informed, and worked tirelessly to ensure a positive outcome. I’m grateful for his expertise and highly recommend him to anyone navigating the complexities of immigration law.

Citywide solicitors, I can’t say enough about them

Citywide solicitors, I can’t say enough about them. The staff are so friendly, helpful and curtious. I have had 2 urgent matters that needed to be dealt with and Mr Mathias was so kind, helpful and professional at the same time. Most times solicitors will not even take the time out to help walkins without an appointment but they do. Highly recommended.
